We Are Cisco 

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team

and make a difference powering an inclusive future for all. 

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital

businesses. Some may think we’re “old” (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but

we’re also a software company. And a security company. We even invented an intuitive

network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we

do – you can’t put us in a box!

But “Digital Transformation” is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for

innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)

Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, give our egos a break, and

give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability,

bold steps, and take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a

dedication to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

So, you have colorful hair? Don’t care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That’s cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be

you, with us!
